Here’s what women said about past Galas!

Great event last night. Thanks! – Sheryl
I thoroughly enjoyed every minute! I started your book last night. Couldn’t wait! I spoke with our shelter supervisor about getting you and your message here to the women at Safe Harbor. – Gina
What a great evening last night was…What a great treat the three sisters were and Theresa is so funny plus the two charities are great causes. – Pattie
I had a great time tonight! It was a nice break in my hectic schedule. The people at my table were terrific. You are amazing, Annmarie. You are a fabulous host and when you talk it is so real. – Maureen

Victorious Woman Celebration
The Girlfriend Gala hit new heights in 2015 with its move to the Penn Oaks Golf Club in West Chester PA. AS the Girlfriends checked out the fabulous raffle and silent auction surprises, they found new Girlfriends as they looked for their Girlfriend “match” in a fun networking opener. The evening featured lots of women’s empowerment themes including those from Butler Bag and Leader Girlz creator Jen Groover’s inspiring message, attorney and author Cathy Sikorski’s funny slant on caregiving, and Annmarie Kelly’s motivating message about getting a midlife makeover started. The beneficiary was the Phil-Hanna Fund which supports women of non-traditional age who are returning to the nursing program at Delaware County Community College. Thanks to sponsors Ease-Up Massage and Pre-Habilitation, Yoder and Armstrong Commercial Printing and Delaware County Community College. Mark your calendar now for the 2016 Girlfriend Gala: May 25 at the Penn Oaks Golf Club.
What Would You Do Without Your Girlfriends?
How many times have your girlfriends been your support team – and you, theirs – through life’s rough patches and tough times? And, when you’re on the victorious side of a challenge, aren’t they the BEST ones with whom to celebrate the success?
Of course they are –
and The Girlfriend Gala is the place to do it!
Watch Annmarie’s interview about this year’s Girlfriend Gala, on Comcast Newsmakers!
Get together with your good friends for a night of fun and inspiration. And while you’re celebrating your victories, you’ll also be helping other women who, after raising a family or other hiatus, return to school for a nursing degree.
